I am with Bluerosy on this one. As I was often reminded as a young herp breeder, You don't breed them, they breed eachother. Your task is to support what they do.

If you read that it can cause problems, you really should ask why. IT can cause problems if the females are forced to nest in crappy conditions, they hold the eggs and dehydrate, which causes problems. That same poor nesting causes the same thing with larger females, only they have more mass.
Its so easy to provide more suitable nesting that does not cause dehydration. Then its good for small females and better less stressful for larger females. IT can be done in a million ways. Ok, at least 50 or so. Naw, at least a 100 best wishes
